RE: 8th Paul Revere Lantern
SUBJECT: Tell GOP Candidates to Attack the Democrats as the Abortion Extremists they are.
If conservative and Republican candidates continue to follow the advice of establishment Republican leaders and their “content-free” consultants to avoid talking about abortion and even switch topics when it comes up, many good candidates will lose by a few points this November.
Instead, going head-to-head on abortion is a winning strategy for conservative and Republican candidates because it will expose their Democrat opponents’ radical and extreme position on abortion.
That’s because, on every major abortion issue, partial-birth abortion, parental notification, sex-selection abortions, abortion up to birth, and infanticide, a clear majority of Americans agree with pro-life Republicans.
70% of U.S. adults favor a ban on partial-birth abortion where the child is killed by sucking its brain out. ¹
64% of Americans favor parental notification for teens under 21 before getting an abortion. ²
77% of Americans support a ban on sex-selection abortions. ³
71% of Americans oppose killing babies in abortions up to the moment of birth. ⁴
82% of Americans oppose allowing a child to die after a botched abortion. ⁵
Because of these extreme positions the Democrats have on abortion, conservative and GOP candidates are on the winning side, and, in fact, should attack their Democrat opponents head-on when the abortion issue comes up or risk defeat.
That’s exactly what happened recently to Republican Marc Molinaro, in a special election for New York’s 19th Congressional District. He lost by 3 points because he deliberately failed to attack his Democrat opponent’s extreme position in support of skull-smashing partial-birth abortion and abortion right up to the moment of birth in the delivery room.
Going on the ATTACK on the Abortion Issue
BRANDS Democrats as Extremists
By going on the offense on abortion and exposing the Democrats as extreme, GOP candidates can greatly energize their base, but can also help turn suburban women, independents, and undecided voters against the Democrat candidate.
That’s why, as pro-life conservatives, we must insist our conservative and Republican candidates ignore establishment Republican leaders and their consultants and go on the attack when the abortion issue comes up and make the abortion issue a major topic in their campaign.
And here’s some proof that BRANDING Democrats as extremists on abortion can lead to victory:
In Ohio, Mike Carey, a National Right to Life endorsed candidate, won Ohio’s 15th Congressional District by openly supporting the Hyde Amendment (which prohibits the use of U.S. taxpayer dollars from funding abortions in most cases) and for his support for protecting unborn babies from late-term abortions.
In Pennsylvania, a “purple” state, pro-life judges won every single statewide election in November 2021. Despite a massive funding and public-relations blitz by Planned Parenthood to propel their pro-abortion candidates to office, the myth that pro-life candidates can’t win statewide office is the only thing that died. ⁶
In 2021 pro-life GOP candidate Jake Ellzey won a special election in the Texas 6th Congressional District. He distinguished himself from the pack of GOP candidates by proclaiming “every life is a precious gift from God.” And that, “I 100% support the right to life as the first and most vital right.”
And finally, that infamous truck driver in New Jersey, Edward Durr, who spent only $153 dollars and toppled longtime incumbent Democrat pro-abortion State Senate President Stephen Sweeney in 2021. Durr billed himself as a constitutional conservative, and has been quoted as saying, “abortion is wrong and should be stopped.” ⁷
We must force Democrats to defend their extremism on abortion
Here are some talking points for you to familiarize yourself with when talking to Democrat and independent voters as well as for forwarding to GOP candidates to help them go on the attack when the abortion issue comes up:
More than 20 million Black babies have been aborted since the 1973 when Roe v. Wade was decided. ⁸
Planned Parenthood puts 86% of its abortion facilities in minority neighborhoods. ⁹
The global phenomenon of sex-selection abortions, nearly always carried out against female children developing in the womb, has resulted in an estimated death of 163,000,000 girls. ¹⁰
Partial-birth abortion is holding half of the baby’s body still inside her mother’s body, then killing it by jamming scissors into the child’s neck.
Every U.S. Senate Democrat voted in 2022 to allow abortion right up to the moment of birth. ¹¹
The founder of Planned Parenthood, Margaret Sanger, advocated for the extermination of African Americans. ¹²
On January 28, 2021, just 6 days after being sworn in, President Biden issued an executive order forcing American taxpayers to fund groups that promote abortion overseas by repealing the Trump administration’s Global Protect Life policy (formerly the Mexico City Policy).
Democrats’ claim that Millennials overwhelming support abortion-on-demand is false. Only 7% of Millennials share the position of the Democratic Party platform for abortion-on-demand. ¹³
HERE’s some background and facts to arm you when talking to voters and GOP candidates.
Check out these quotes by actual Democrats linked here in our Activist Toolbox as well as helpful resources like supporting articles, videos and talking points you can use to educate others about the Democrats’ extreme positions regarding our most vulnerable citizens – our children.
ATTACK, ATTACK, ATTACK – Here’s How
Spineless elected officials got us into the mess we are in as a nation. And we will lose the election unless we take the battle to the Democrats. We must become the leaders we are looking for and actively insist all conservative and GOP candidates go on the attack on the abortion issue to BRAND Democrats as extremists.
That will help to make them toxic to voters and increase our chances of taking back Congress.
Here’s how you can take action now to educate voters about the Democrats’ Extreme position on abortion and to encourage GOP candidates to go the attack on the abortion issue:
forward this email to those you know to be conservative and urge them to forward this e-mail to people on their e-mail list. People are more likely to open and read e-mails from folks they know.
host a gathering and distribute this e-mail and activist Toolbox. Urge your guests to make copies of this e-mail and Toolbox and forward them to their family, friends, neighbors, and others to help educate voters on the extreme abortion position of Democrat candidates.
post on your social media accounts this e-mail and Activist Toolbox (Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat, Gettr, Gab, and others) and urge viewers to familiarize themselves with this material and to forward these voter education materials to everyone they know.
call a talk radio program armed with the information provided here and begin a conversation on how extreme Democrat candidates have become on abortion.
attend a political rally or townhall and talk to the conservative/Republican candidate and strongly urge they go on the attack on the abortion issue. Give them a copy of this e-mail and Toolbox.
write a letter to the editor of your local newspaper. Feel free to use the information here, word for word if you like, to urge voters in your area to reconsider voting for a Democrat because of their extreme position on abortion.
start a phone campaign by calling family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and others to tell them you have some critical information for them that you will send in the mail about the dangers of voting for Democrats this November.
Unless you speak out you cannot be a voice for the unborn who don’t have one!
One more thing. Consider helping financially. FedUp PAC’s Paul Revere Riders are doing what no other conservative organization is doing—providing news, information, articles, videos, etc. to millions of conservatives so that they can share information with family, friends, and others.
Together, we can take the fight right to the Democrats’ doors while we work for their well-deserved defeat in November.
P.S. I’m sending the Paul Revere Lantern to 400,000 grassroots conservatives each week. However, in order to reach 100,000,000 voters 5 days a week with 15-20 new conservative news stories that the Big Media has kept from them, we’ll need to quickly increase the number of conservative leaders/activists receiving our daily Paul Revere Lantern to 10,000,000.
However, it will cost $10,000,000, and I will need your help.
Some can give a lot, others much less. But whatever you send will make a difference. No other conservative organization is doing what we’re doing. If we don’t raise the $10,000,000, tens of millions of voters won’t hear the truth before voting.
This project can help elect 5-10 more conservative U.S. House members, and several more U.S. Senators, governors, and hundreds of state legislators in tight races.
Because Paul Revere Lantern is a project of FedUp PAC, an independent expenditure PAC, we can accept donations of any amount, including corporate contributions.
